Event Summary

The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Friday, September 18th 2020, or created by us.

In the sixth annual Collegiate Penetration Testing Competition (CPTC), top cybersecurity students from across the world will gain real-life experiences that will benefit their eventual work environments.

To give an idea of the level of this competition: during the 2019-2020 academic year, some teams had more than 100 students attend tryouts. During the 2019-2020 International Finals, competitors discovered two zero-days, registered them as CVEs, and designed a patch for the most critical vulnerability. The 2020-21 competition theme is Industrial Control Systems for an energy company.

Top cybersecurity students from across the globe compete in 9 regions; the top 15 teams advance to the international finals.

Infrastructure themes:

2020-2021: Energy
2019-2020: Finance
2018-2019: Transportation
2017-2018: Managed Elections
2016-2017: Hospital
2015-2016: Generic Corporation
